As a part of Brian & Jenn Johnson, three live albums have been released: Undone (2001), We Believe (2006), the duo's first release to chart on Billboard's Christian Albums chart, and Where You Go I Go (2008). The duo has also released one studio album, After All These Years (2017), which charted on the US Billboard 200. As a founding member of Bethel Music, Johnson has been featured on most Bethel Music releases.

Early life[edit]

Johnson was born on March 17, 1978 to Bill Johnson and Brenda "Beni" Johnson in Redding, California. In the year of his birth, the Johnson family moved to Weaverville, California, after Bethel Church, under the leadership of his grandfather, Earl Johnson, sent his father to pastor Mountain Chapel.[7] He completed his high school education at Trinity High School in Weaverville. After seventeen years, the Johnsons moved back to Redding in 1996 when Bill and Beni Johnson assumed leadership of Bethel Church.[7]

Johnson has two siblings: an older brother, Eric Johnson, who is a pastor at Bethel Church, and a younger sister Leah Valenzuela (née Johnson), who is also a member of the Bethel Music collective and one of the worship leaders at Bethel Church.
